|At 12:00 pm, we’ll hear from athlete and activist Ashley Kumlien who grew up well aware of the challenges of living in MS: her mother, Jill, was diagnosed shortly before Ashley was born. In 2009 Ashley established her own nonprofit organization, MS Run the US with the mission of raising awareness of MS and funds for MS research. From March to September 2010, she ran 3,288 miles across America from San Francisco to New York City. During her journey, Ashley ran nearly a marathon a day, six days a week, for six months, while fundraising for the MS cause. The event raised thousands of dollars and rallied thousands of supporters around the cause. Upon completion, Ashley became the 16th female to ever run across America. Last year, Ashley organized a relay run across the U.S. with 16 participants who each ran an equivalent of approximately a marathon (26.2 miles) every day for six consecutive days during their assigned segment. The entirety of the Relay spanned 145 days and raised over $500,000 to help cure multiple sclerosis|
At 12:30pm, we’ll enjoy the latest fashions thanks to Paletti located at 3210 Highland Drive in Salt Lake City.
